Chuggy Perchard (Cricket, Jersey)
Jersey Cricket captain Chuggy Perchard led by example as his team moved one step closer to qualifying for the T20 World Cup.
Chuggy skippered the side as Jersey won six games out of six at the European Qualifiers in Spain.
The all-rounder finished the tournament as the leading wicket taker and starred during a man of the match performance against Denmark where his impressive death bowling earned his side an unlikely victory.
Chuggy looks set to captain the team again when they travel to Zimbabwe for the global qualifiers later this year.

Alex Scott (Football, Guernsey)
At the start of 2021 not many Bristol City fans knew too much about Alex Scott. By the end of it he was a first-team regular and one of their most exciting prospects for many years.
During the last 12 months Alex has signed his first professional contract, made his Championship debut, was awarded with another new contract, scored three league goals and played for England Under 20s.
Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson has been more than impressed, tipping him to earn a senior England call-up one day.
